Historic Trails Award
This Award is meant for Scouts BSA.
To earn the Historic Trails award, members of your unit must plan and participate in a historic activity.
See a list of Approved Historic Trails by state.
A unit historic activity requires members to:
- Locate a historic trail or site using The Adventure Plan site or by contacting local councils. Have participating Scouts study materials regarding the historical aspect of the trail or site using council-provided pamphlets, web-based resources, local historic societies, or the library.
- Hike or camp 2 days and 1 night along the trail or in the vicinity of the site.
- Conduct a substantial service project or trail/site restoration under the supervision or permission of the owner or sponsoring agency of the trail or site. An alternative to a project can be a historic pageant, ceremony, or other public event related to this trail or site.
Such an event should be large enough to merit coverage by the local press.
- Your unit leader must then file the Historic Trails Award Application with your council service center.
